The 3-year Composition Academic Course was born from an attentive fusion between traditional studies – such as counterpoint, harmony, orchestration – and an attentive look on the contemporaneous professional issues, in order to provide each student with all the necessary tools and skills to achieve his/her own music ideas with the most suited techniques. Each subject will be targeted to applied music: music for films, commercials, short movies, documentaries.
The 1st cycle academic diploma issued by Saint Louis is equally valid both in Italy and in Europe, as all qualifications issued by Italian and European Conservatories.
The Course is of EQF level 6 and enhances the student, upon termination, to access Master Level Courses (EQF 7) both in Italy and abroad. To better understand the EQF – European Qualification Framework – for the Italian Higher Education System please visit the website Quadro dei Titoli Italiani.
The Course is ECTS based. Every year is worth 60 ECTS credits, for a total of 180 ECTS credits. To better understand the ECTS – European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System – please visit the dedicated page on the European Commission website.
